    I have never setup a forum before and need help from a kind person. I have he domain name and hosting already done. I have a nulled/cracker version of IPB forums but it just is not working very well. I would like to switch to SMF (or some other free forum software)and I am not sure how to do that.

    Some things I want modded/plugins on the forum are:

    chat room function. Where all my users can be in 1 chat room and talk back and forth with option to PM users of your choice.

    raffle mod. I would like to give away free items to my users all they have to do is get a raffle ticket (free tickets)

    lastly I would like a donate now button linked with PP

    the problem I am having with IPB is the chat is unreliable at best, the raffle plugin j found required payments through PP (I want the raffle to be free) and I cannot figure out how to add a donate now button linked to PP

    Try searching envato market for forum typed themes, as you can use many different plugins for what you need to do on wordpress, otherwise check out vbulletin :)
